Apple Pistachio Nut Cake with Honey Apple Topping


  • Preheat oven to 160* C (320* F) Fan.
  • Grease a 23 cm spring form pan and dust with flour.
  • Peel and chop the 350 g of apples into 1-2 cm cubes.
  • Beat the butter and sugar in a mixer for at least 10 minutes, until very light and fluffy.
  • In another bowl, beat the honey with the eggs. When completely combined, add it to the sugar mixture and beat.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour with the baking powder. Add the apples. Add it to the mixture.
  • Add the pistachio nuts. Gently fold with a spatula.
  • Transfer batter to spring form. Bake for about 50 minutes or until you insert a knife in the cake and it comes out clean and dry.
  • Check the cake ½ an hour into baking time to make sure it hasn’t become too dark on top. If it has, cover it with some aluminum foil.
  • When ready, remove from oven. Let it cool for 40 minutes and turn it out on to a serving platter.
  • While the cake is baking, prepare the topping. Sauté the apples in a pan along with the honey and sugar.
  • If you want the mixture to look more like marmalade, add 2-3 tablespoons water and cut the apples into cubes and simmer over low heat.
  • Serve the cake with the honey apple topping with extra pistachio nuts.
